National Monument to the Forefathers (Pilgrim Monument) Replica
This is a hand finished, second edition, solid replica of the National Monument to the Forefathers, previously known as the Pilgrim Monument.
The National Monument to the Forefathers, formerly known as the Pilgrim Monument, commemorates the Mayflower Pilgrims. Dedicated on August 1, 1889, it honors their ideals as later generally embraced by the United States. It is thought to be the world's largest solid granite monument.
Located at 72 Allerton Street in Plymouth, Massachusetts, the 81-foot-tall (25 m) monument was commissioned by the Pilgrim Society. The original concept dates to around 1820, with actual planning beginning in 1850. The cornerstone was laid August 2, 1859 by the Grand Lodge of Masons in Massachusetts, under the direction of Grand Master John T. Heard. The monument was completed in October 1888, and was dedicated with appropriate ceremonies on August 1, 1889.

This is a 3D printed product, so there may be minor defects (rough edges, bumps, etc). I have spent months building my own machines to exact specifications for accuracy and surface quality, and I scrutinize every model very closely. I use only the highest quality filament to ensure colors are vibrant and defects are kept to an absolute minimum for both your item and my machine. Every item in my shop is test printed and checked for not only aesthetics, but also the intended use. If I'm not happy with it, it doesn’t ship. You will get my very best work, which you will find is a cut above the rest!
POLYLACTIC ACID (PLA PLASTIC)
Every item in my shop is made from Polylactic Acid (PLA), which is a non-toxic organic thermo-polymer made from corn starch or sugarcane and is industrially compostable under very specific and expensive conditions. It will not break down if buried or submerged in water and will last for a very, very long time. 3DPD makes every effort to repurpose and transform waste plastics such as support material and failed prints. One example of this is that our PLA waste is ground up into shards and suspended in the filled and premium bust product lines. Additionally, in-house colors such as black make use of a small percentage of waste plastics to recycle them. Anyone that makes the claim that PLA is “eco-friendly” or “biodegradable” is simply misinformed and has copy/pasted the erroneous marketing materials made available by the manufacturers. 3DPD will aspire to reduce, repurpose, recycle, or upcycle its waste streams and prevent as much material as possible from being sent to the landfill, and a portion of your purchase will be used to fund this ongoing research and development.
